No prizes for working out who was the previous operator of MMF before Air Tasmania.

The newest member of the legendary DC-9 family. Wow, Boeing tried to kill the DC-9 family in favor of the 737 family, but the DC-9 apparently refuses to die. And I'm glad.

This was built as a C-47-DL for the USAAF in 1941. It arrived at Amberley (Qld) in January 1943 and was sold to the Dept Of Civil Aviation in July 1944.

It was converted to an airliner and registered VH-AER 30 January 1945. It went into service with Trans-Australia Airlines October 1946 and between then and February 1983 it served with many carriers, even recovered from a crash. It was sold to McDonalds in March 1983 ending up as a dining room at McDonalds West Lakes (outside a shopping centre).

It was sold to a person in South Australia in 2000 but its current status isn’t known.

This is the only photo I have of a TAA DC-9 in the original livery and it was taken on a Kodak Instamatic. I can’t be certain of the date (didn’t get into recording information until a bit later) but by this time, there weren’t too many TAA aircraft left in the old livery.

I was on a bus tour holiday in Tasmania - you know, get up early, pack, rush breakfast and out the door to get on the road, rush from place to place and usually end up exhausted at the end of the day - happy days!

We arrived in Wynyard with enough time to go exploring and I found the airport with this sitting there disembarking passengers. I’ve cropped it wider than usual to leave the well-dressed gentleman in the pic as he has an Ansett bag over his shoulder - remember airline bags?

While I was there TAA Fokker Friendship, VH-FNT arrived and yes, I’ve got photos of that.

I don’t think they’ve operated any 747-8 for British Airways in at least 4-5 years.

I did a lot of walking around the airport finding various parked aircraft. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this was at the old Qantas jet base. This is another photo taken on a Kodak Instamatic so the quality isn’t so great.

Departing off runway 05 this is what should have been the Wednesday only weekly cargo flight from and to Singapore during coronavirus restrictions but when I arrived for the departure, found the aircraft at the passenger terminal rather than at a cargo bay.

The previous day’s flight was the regular Tuesday passenger flight so perhaps we may be getting two passenger services per week, albeit with not many passengers.

The afternoon temperature on the open concrete at the intersection of Alpha and 31L was in the high 90s, but the mercury quickly went way up when this F-35 and its companions positioned on 31L and lit up. And the temp stayed way, WAY up into triple digits at that location for awhile because the four F-35s were just the first four of a thirteen bird afternoon launch. It became so hot out there by the time the last warbird (a Tactical Air F-5) took off that when they were finally all gone and the air temp dropped back down into the upper 90s, it felt quite chilly. lol

I still remember seeing the B-52 fly in and out of Biggs Air Force Base, when it was a SAC Base,and over our barracks at Fort Bliss Army Base in 1958.

Methinks both McDonnell and Boeing could have had a more profitable approach to the DC-9 legacy.

Written on 2020年 07月 10日 by Michael Carden

The engines seem to have a by-pass shroud that goes all the way aft. It makes the perspective look small compared to those with large frontal by-pass rings. I have not kept up with 747 engine options, but the winglets look very dash400.
